Critic Reviews for Quatermass and the Pit (Five Million Years to Earth)(The Mind Benders)
Routine, somewhat distended development blunts impact of this British-made programmer.

Audience Reviews for Quatermass and the Pit (Five Million Years to Earth)(The Mind Benders)
It's got more depth and action than films with ten times the budget.
the film i set out to watch was called five million years to earth and i was pleasantly surprised to discover that this was actually the famous quartermass and the pit of which i've been hearing for so many years. i know, i'm silly :p the effects look dated and somewhat cheesy but the premise is frankly brilliant and quite bleak. it's too bad hammer didn't have a bit more cash to put into this one. i didn't realize that quartermass had a whole series of films either. he was like an early x-files investigator and even had a beautiful lady scientist helping him out here. good stuff
